    Well, I'm happy it was the shotgun lol I have two trucks, no pump shotguns until now!

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    That's what originally drew me to it, the receiver is a lot like the A5, which is my favorite shotgun.

    Outfit for a pointless trip across London to collect a lost mobile phone - since I spent most of the day standing out in the cold on station platforms waiting for trains that didn't exist, I had chosen the right outfit (submariner sweater, Levis jacket, reproduction WW2 British Army leather jerkin):

    Great look TT, I have a RAF blue lined one from between the wars? so I was told and often wear it when selling at car boors/fairs etc or even working in the garden.... if I can't avoid it!

    Mr B I was very lucky getting it last year in a relatively new localish charity shop it was just being put out on the peg...a steal at the £15? I paid...couldn't get out of the shop quick enough, only needed the sleeves taking up an inch, the waist could really do with taking in an inch or two also but hitched up under a waistcoat you can't really tell.... I love it, great cut and weight and the colour is magnificent in my eyes then I am biased.

  10. The corncob is more like the model 12 but I can see the receiver being like the A5.

    Miss Slapstick, you remind me of Sally Gray, seen here in 'Cheer Up' (1936):

    Amazing lot of good looks folks. All nice outfits miss S. I really like the shot outside the theatre. Great atmosphere.
    Q.Brown that is a perfect look. The jacket is fantastic as is the lid (stratoliner?). The whole look is so well put together.
    Also great shot Dinerman.
    Cpdv, Tommy, pinesiw all looking good over the holiday.
    Happy new year to all

    A really excellent ensemble, not that we would expect anything else from you! It's a bit difficult to see the hat. Your overcoat looks as if the fabric is rather lightweight - as if it were a spring or autumn coat. But I've long been of the opinion that lightweight wool topcoats for the transitional seasons have been missing for many years and deserve reinstatement.

    Yesterday was in the 40s, so it was a bit warm for one of my heavier coats. It's kind of unusual, heavily corded blue wool twill- not what you usually see with a Chesterfield collar.

    Here's the hat- I mistyped, it's a Berg, not a Bond. From the 1920s, but with the dimensions, works well with the rest of the late '50s stuff.
